By Stephen Smale, Felipe Cucker, Roderick S. C. Wong
Stephen smale is among the nice mathematicians of the twentieth century. His paintings features a wide selection of matters: differential topology, dynamical structures, calculus of diversifications, concept of computation, mechanics and mathematical economic climate. In a lot of these topics he has left the imprint of choice of primary effects. He has receive numerous differences, together with the Fields Medal, he Veblen Prize, the Chauvenet Prize, the von Neumann Award and the nationwide Medal of Science.
This precious e-book includes the gathered papers of Stephen Smale. those are divided into 8 teams: topology; calculus of adaptations; dynamics; mechanics; economics; biology, electrical circuits and mathematical programming; conception of computation; miscellaneous. furthermore, every one team includes one or articles via international leaders on its topic which touch upon the impression of Smale's paintings, and one other article by way of Smale together with his one retrospective perspectives.
